What a beautiful story. I think Susie Bear knew what to do during the ceremony because of telepathic communication with Daweela. I have chickens free-running in my yard, and I listen to how they communicate with each other and watch how they interact. One hen likes to lay her egg in the foyer instead of in the coop. After laying her egg every day, she comes up the stairs to the door and cackles loudly until I come and thank her for the beautiful egg and tell her what a wonderful chicken she is. Then she goes out happily to join the flock. I talk to the chickens and imagine that maybe they understand me.
